Jez Moxey has been appointed as the new chief executive of Norwich City after ending a 16-year association with Wolves.
Moxey's departure from Molineux was confirmed earlier this week when the Sky Bet Championship club was taken over by a Chinese group, but he has not taken long to find a new role.
The 53-year-old will move to Carrow Road once he has overseen the transition to new ownership for Wolves.
Norwich chairman Ed Balls said: "We're absolutely delighted to be welcoming Jez on board to lead this great football club into the next chapter of its 114-year history.
"We've conducted the very best and most thorough search for the right person to help us take the club forward and Jez, with his wealth of football experience and business acumen, was the stand-out candidate from an extremely strong shortlist.
"He is a very astute and highly-regarded operator within the game and has all the attributes and skills needed to embrace the immediate challenge of helping us to get back to the Premier League as a successful and vibrant club, on and off the pitch.
"Meanwhile, until Jez formally takes up his duties with us, Steve Stone will continue as interim chief executive. The board would like to place on record our sincere gratitude for the excellent job Steve has done leading the club through this period of transition."
